Egypt forces on high alert in Sinai

Egyptian military forces in the Sinai were placed on high alert, Egyptian officials said.

Military forces, placed on high alert Sunday, were instructed to watch for cars rigged with explosives that may be detonated near Egyptian security posts in the Sinai.

Officials said they believe members of Saidani’s Salafist group, the Hashura Council of the Mujahedin, may attempt to carry out attacks against Israel from the Sinai.
